Longline baskets on the beach at Cromarty, c1910

Two fishermen work on the shore beside a boat, below the fishertown at Cromarty. Beside them are several sculls, or scoos, – line baskets.┬áThe small boats reflected the type of fishing and the sculls used, which was close to home. Cromarty line baskets, or sculls, are characteristically deep in construction.┬áThis, and the other images of Cromarty taken around 1910, reveal a thriving fishing community, very involved in line fishing.
